Captain Glyph is Bookworm Meets Tetris on the iPhone

Thu, Jun 3, 2010

iPhone, Mobile

Captain Glyph is a word game from Mars’ Toad that puts you in the shoes of the legendary pirate, as he sails through six different themed environments (the Jungle, the Desert, a Volcano, Ice Cave, the Future and the Ocean) searching for “treasure words.”

Gameplay itself seems letter tiles falling from the top of the screen, and you’ll need to maneuver them so that they create a word with other tiles already on the screen. For instance, if “a” and “n” are on top of one another, you could add an “r,” creating the word “ran.”

The game supports six different languages (English, French, Spanish, Japanese, German and Italian), with improvements in the English dictionary coming with the next update. There are three difficulty levels to choose from, along with power-ups to collect and enemies to avoid.

OpenFeint integration will be expanded in a future update to include achievements and challenges, but leaderboards are already available.

Captain Glyph is now available on iTunes for $0.99. If you’re interested in downloading it, you can do so by clicking on this handy-dandy link. Captain Glyph
